St. Jude Children's Research Hospital



St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is launching a recruiting effort for laboratory-based faculty positions at the ASSISTANT, ASSOCIATE, or FULL Member levels for the newly formed Center of Excellence in Innate Immunity and Inflammation (CoE-III). The mission of the CoE-III is to define innate immune mechanisms driving health and disease, with key focus areas of understanding the fundamental mechanisms of III and investigating III across the disease spectrum, from infection to inflammatory diseases and cancer. We seek investigators who are creative problem-solvers from diverse backgrounds that can seamlessly interface with our highly collaborative culture to advance our understanding of III in health and disease.

The St. Jude research community fosters a highly interactive environment with plentiful collaborative opportunities across our basic research and clinical departments and access to state-of-the-art institutional shared resources and core facilities managed by highly engaged Ph.D. level scientists. St. Jude offers unparalleled startup packages, equipment, laboratory space, personnel support, and continuing institutional support beyond the start-up phase to support our institutional commitment to doing the most cutting-edge research possible.

St. Jude is located in the heart of Memphis, TN, with relocation assistance available. The facilities and salaries are competitive, and a generous benefit package is included. Memphis is a family-friendly metropolitan area that is recognized for its world-class music, food, and hospitality. Mild winters and beautiful green spaces are part of the reasons why Forbes recently named Memphis the 4th happiest city in which to work.

This is a remarkable opportunity to be part of a positive workplace where all employees, regardless of their role, share the same commitment to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer and other catastrophic illnesses. St. Jude is consistently ranked on Fortune Magazine’s “100 Best Places to Work For”, and in the past five years, St. Jude has ranked as one of the “Best Workplaces for Women,” as well as one of the “Best Workplaces for Diversity.”


Interested applicants should submit a CV and a letter of research interests directly online.


Successful applicants must hold a PhD, MD and/or equivalent degree, have at least three years of relevant postgraduate experience, and have a proven track record of productivity.
